These binge busters will come in handy the next time you feel hangry.

There are many people who generally eat very well, but occasionally "fall off the wagon" and binge, undoing all their hard work. Here are some common situations where a binge is triggered, and ideas on how to circumvent them. Learn how to strengthen your willpower with these time-tested binge busters.

Binge Trigger #1: You allow yourself to become overly hungry, and you lose control when you finally get to eat.

Binge Buster: Keep an easy-to-eat snack that contains protein, such as a Quest bar, with you at all times. If you miss a meal or there is nothing healthy to eat, have the bar so that you are not ravenous by the time you finally get some real food.

 

Binge Trigger #2: You are a at a party and have something 'bad,' and then either keep eating 'bad' stuff at the party or get into some junk once you get home.

Binge Buster: Make a pact with yourself that, after indulging in a portion or food that isn't on plan, the next thing you eat will include some lean protein and some produce. For instance, if you have some birthday cake at a party, make the next thing you eat a piece of chicken and some salad or fruit. Most of the time additional cravings will be put to bay after eating the healthy food.

 

Binge Buster #3: You find yourself bored at home and wander into the kitchen to go looking for something to snack on.

Binge Buster: Make a pact with yourself that you will go outside for a walk or go thru some yoga or stretching for at least 20 minutes before you let yourself snack. Chances are, once those endorphins start moving thru your bloodstream and your boredom is alleviated, you will be much less interested in bingeing.
